Has mixed feelings towards this listing

Robert and Susan were lovely hosts. Their mission is admirable and have done great work.The property was very nice and the tippee was a fun touch. This type of camping is not for the faint of heart. The outhouse was appalling and no bathing accommodations at all. I would suggest making individual campsites as opposed to just setting up along the road. I would also suggest widening your hiking trails which at certain points are extremely dangerous and scary along the cliffs. At first I was disappointed there were not campfires at each site but only the communal one. However, we had a great time hanging out fireside with our camping neighbors. We were also disappointed we were not able to go canoeing. No one on staff seemed to know what was happening with this and we were never able to out on the water.
